Nyong’o made a number of fashionable impressions on the red carpet of various events this spring and also been named the first-ever black brand ambassador for Lancôme.


In her interview with Vogue, Lupita agreed that she’s had a “surreal” 2014 so far, adding:

“It just feels like the entertainment industry exploded into my life. People who seemed so distant all of a sudden were right in front of me and recognizing me – before I recognized them!”

Nyong’o, of course, will soon be recognized a whole lot more: she’ll play a key, mysterious role in Star Wars Episode VII.

We can’t wait!!!
